PhD offer at the Department of Materials and Earth Sciences at TU Darmstadt
The Ceramics group (Prof. Jürgen Rödel) at the Department of Materials and Earth Sciences at TU Darmstadt has an opening for a
Subject: Dislocation toughening of oxides
Their recent results suggest that high dislocation densities in oxides and semiconductors afford high damage resistance and fracture toughness depending on crystal structure and plane. Therefore they work towards the development of high-density dislocation structures by macroscopic and local mechanical quasistatic and cyclic loading (nanoindentation, micropillar compression), characterization with partners by TEM, X-ray dark field microscopy, as well as mechanical characterization by crack tip opening methods and instability criteria.
- Excellent university degree (Master) in Materials Science or Physics.
- Strong interest in scientific research combined with a strong desire for international collaboration and ability to work in a team.
- Very good knowledge of spoken and written English.
Strong academic background in one or more of the following subjects: metal plasticity, solid state mechanics, crystallography Demonstrated ability for independent scientific research.
Applications should include scientific CV (including list of publications in peer-reviewed journals, if any), courses and grades, motivation letter and contact data from two references. Please direct specific inquiries to Prof. Jürgen Rödel and send applications to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Code No. 371
Application deadline: August 15, 2021
